As the nation's only island city, the heart of Portsmouth lies where the Solent waterway meets the English Channel.

No matter what your style of water sport looks like, or your reasons for sojourning to the area, Portsmouth hotels are a testament to the very best of premiere hospitality.

Portsmouth is both home to the oldest navel dry dock in the world and acts as a home to the Royal Navy and Royal Marine Commandos. The city's commercial sea port is also a major centre for freighter traffic, imports, exports and cruise ship voyages. As such, Portsmouth's rich maritime history makes it an ideal seaside and boating holiday destination.

But there are also a host of other attractions visitors are drawn to: Fascinating museums, the spinnaker Tower, and the award winning Gunwharf Quays, an exciting waterfront array of cosmopolitan bars, fashion boutiques, nightclubs, cinemas and entertainment venues. Of course children and the young at heart will not want to miss out on such popular attractions as Blue Reef Aquarium, Playzone, Action Stations and the Pyramids Centre.

High speed Wi-Fi internet in your room will ensure you are never out of touch with the world. While each of the Portsmouth hotels also feature rooms equipped with kitchenettes for guests who prefer to cook up a little something of their own for a midnight snack.
